  • Patent number: 10708374
    Abstract: Techniques for enabling notification from a network resource are described. In at least some embodiments, a user subscribes to receive notifications from a network resource, such as a website, a web-based resource, and so forth. The network resource can provide notifications to a client device of the user, such as a push notification indicating that content is available from the network resource. Based on the push notification, content from the network resource can be presented on the client device, such as in a notification indicator presented on the client device and associated with the network resource.

  • Patent number: 10591451
    Abstract: A new electrospray emitter capable of cone-jet mode spray for liquid flow-rates from sub-microliter/minute to 10's of microliters/minute is provided. The high efficiency of ionization and vaporization enabled by the disclosed spray emitter provides improved sensitivity for mass spectrometer detection. The disclosed spray emitter sprays consistently and robustly a liquid buffer having a large range of compositions of aqueous and organic solvents, and is not sensitive to the polarity of the electric field used to induce spray. The fluidic channel leading to the spray emitter opening does not have an internal taper rendering the spray emitter clog-resistant.
